Deciding on your property management software platform is an important decision. With so many options out there, you want to make sure that you pick the right one for your business.
If you’ve narrowed your search down to Innago and TenantCloud, you’re in the right place. In this article, we’ll be covering five reasons to choose Innago over TenantCloud.
- Innago Is More Affordable
TenantCloud has four different pricing options. The first is the Free plan, which, as the name suggests, is free and includes the most basic property management features like rent collection and tenant screening. Next is the Starter plan, which costs $15 per month and adds some other core features like tax reports and electronic signatures. Next is the Growth plan, which costs $50 per month and adds helpful features, such as a lease builder and QuickBooks online sync. Lastly is the Business plan, which utilizes custom pricing and adds even more features to the mix like task management and customization.
Innago’s pricing model is quite a bit simpler. When you use Innago, you get access to every feature for free. Innago makes its money from small fees charged to tenants for a few specific services. For instance, when a tenant makes a bill payment using ACH, they’re charged an additional $2 fee. This becomes 2.75% when they pay using a card. Applicants are also charged a $30 fee for a tenant screening report that includes a credit and criminal history check or a $35 fee if the report includes an eviction history check. Lastly, tenants can purchase renters insurance policies directly off the platform at varying prices.
- Innago Has Better Customer Support
Innago assigns every account a specific representative whom you can contact via email and phone whenever you have questions or need assistance. You can also contact Innago after hours and almost always get ahold of someone. If you don’t get an immediate response, they’ll return your call or email after a few hours at the latest.
TenantCloud, on the other hand, only offers phone support from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CST on Mondays through Fridays.
